Catfish And The Bottlemen Announce New Album and UK/EuropeanTour - Tickets On Sale Feb 1

Thursday, 24 January 2019 Written by Jon Stickler

Catfish and the Bottlemen will return with a new album and tour dates in the spring.

Titled 'The Balance', the indie quartet's third full length will arrive on April 26 via Island Records. The news follows the release of lead single Longshot, which dropped at the start of the year. Head below to view the album's cover art and tracklist.

Recorded in between the band's summer shows in 2018, Van McCann, Johnny Bond, Robert 'Bob' Hall and Benji Blakeway teamed up with Irish producer Jacknife Lee to craft the 11 tracks. They holed up for over a year at two locations: Grouse Lodge, in Moate, Republic of Ireland, and the Chapel in East Lincolnshire. McCann said:

"We loved living in the same place. We were staying there the whole time, so we were waking up around each other and working until we needed to go to bed. Jacknife was always up. He was the first up and the last awake. It’s good when you’re completely engulfed in recording in a place like that, living together, because every day and all day it was about the songs. We had fun too; they were the funniest album sessions we’ve done."

The album's release will be accompanied by a run of live shows across the UK and Europe, kicking off in Galway on April 28, with tickets on general sale at 10am on February 1. The new dates will follow on from the band's imminent sold out arena tour which commences in Nottingham on February 19.

1. Longshot
2. Fluctuate
3. 2all
4. Conversation
5. Sidetrack
6. Encore
7. Basically
8. Intermission
9. Mission
10. Coincide
11. Overlap
